WP Rugby (Pty) Ltd on Tuesday confirmed that tighthead prop Faan Rautenbach has been signed for the 2005 season.
Rautenbach has been released from his contract with the Lions, which still had 2 years to run.
“Faan approached us through his agent a few weeks ago and, after agreeing to our terms, we agreed to sign him,” said WP Rugby MD Rob Wagner. “Faan is enormously motivated to through his performances force his way back into national contention. He will add bulk and depth to our tight five and we are very happy to welcome him back.”
Rautenbach will move back to the Cape and commence pre-season preparation with the Stormers squad
